Welcome to Bigelow Brook Farm. Don’t let our name fool you – we are an active farm, as well as a technology consulting and design company focusing on controls and automation in agricultural and light-industrial industries. Our goal is to assist you with your existing systems and help to refine and implement technology to simplify your processes and reduce cost.

Our latest product, the GrowGrip™, is a new and exciting method for raising plants in hydroponic and aquaponic systems - saving time and money for many growers.

Although it may seem like an odd product, we also sell expanded shale - a very lightweight growing media that is used in the hydroponic and aquaponic industries. Our farming operation has the capability to store and package large quantities of material, while our expertise in technology allows us to efficiently distribute the product.

Our 3rd annual open house, part of the Aquaponics Association Tour-de-Tanks promotion, has been scheduled for April 18th. This is a free one-day only event from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday. Come and enjoy learning about our aquaponics system, searching for Bubba in the fish tank, and take a stroll around the farm on the self-guided nature trail. No tickets are necessary. Just plan for the typical New England weather and enjoy a couple of hours here in Connecticut's Quiet Corner.

On April 11th, we will be teaching a class sponsored by the University of Connecticut Extension Master Gardener Program.  This is a 2 hour session right here at our aquaponic geodesic dome greenhouse.  This is an introductory class for folks who want to gain a better understanding of what aquaponics is all about.

Space is limited to 18 people.  Cost is only $40.00 for Master Gardeners or $50.00 for Non-Master Gardeners (people with black thumbs).
